Bio and Links
Bio Photo      I enter records here on Find A Grave for two reasons: First to help others find the graves of lost family members and second to remember our War Hero's who have "Given Their All" for our country!


I've completed the following States displaying World War II Soldiers who died during the war:

Delawareans Who Gave Their All - WW II

Marylanders Who Gave Their All - WW II

New Hampshirites Who Gave Their All - WW II

Vermonters Who Gave Their All - WW II

I'm currently working on the State of Maine:

Mainers Who Gave Their All - WW II


If you'd like me to fix any of the records that I maintain ... please click on the "Edit" button on the top right of the record, click on "Suggest a Correction" ... Enter your note and/or correction and I'll fix them as quickly as possible.

When requesting a transfer use the edit tab on the memorial and follow the below from F-A-G.

From F-A-G

"Explain your relationship in the request! Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred. Keep in mind that the original contributor may also be related to the memorial and may not make the transfer. Bulk surname requests should not be made."


Also note from FAG rules:

"No photos of obituary's are allowed, No bio's in flower sections are allowed. The record added to the right cemetery first may stay and the burial unknown will be deleted regardless of the dates.


     I'm currently working on updating and entered Soldiers and Sailors who "Gave Their All" during World War II. To see more on this project please click on my website below...


     I originally started researching my Family Tree when my oldest son, Chris, came home from school one day and said that they had to write up their family tree as a project. This, of course, led me to many cemeteries and I quickly became interested in them also.

I've always enjoyed history and the two fell together.


     Again, If I've created a record that someone needs deleted (since some families do not want their loved ones on the internet) or that you want me to update please let me know and I'll be glad to update it for you.

Thank you for all your research
Mr. Picket on this very special day, Memorial Day I honored on my Face book account Lieut Charles Richard Anderson. I wanted someone that had fallen from my home state. Thank you for having his name rank and information. I am thankful that I could honor him, after so many years after his sacrifice. May you have a blessed Memorial day.

Pvt Carroll Heath's Memorial
Hello. I came across an article about Pvt. Heath and found him listed here. While you aren't the manager, you are credited with having written his bio.

As I'm not the best at bio's, I'd thought I'd just send you a link to the article in case you'd like to suggest any additional info be added to it.

Find A Grave Memorial for Pvt. Heath -

Many thanks for all the work you've done here.

RE: If they have added to yours...
Check your memorials as well! You are correct - what they are doing just isn't right and I will let the Admins know. The Admins know that I keep up-to-date on my suggestions and edits:)

Searching for my Dad
I knew where my dad was buried. Been there as a child and and as an adult, but what I learned today was that I could sponsor his grave What a wonderful Memorial Day gift I have been given. My son lead me to this site to see his marker again. Thanks for all your time making sure love ones have a place to see and read about their past.He is remembered here at home with a detailed memorial on the back of his parents monument for us to visit closer.

RE: Capt Michael Momcilovich
The day after I took the picture, his class was having their 50th reunion here on West Point. I was volunteering with another organization and his daughter just happened to stop by our table and I was able to meet her.
